Staying at the House of the Rising Sun was more like being at a friend's house (who happens to like driftwood) than a hotel or B&B. Kevin and Wendy are very welcoming and we talked lots about New Orleans and life. Boudin was very friendly...More

I received very late notice that I would have to travel to the New Orleans area for business immediately before Mardi Gras weekend, 2017. Good luck finding a decent, affordable option, right? Fortunately, a friend who used to live on Algiers Point told me to...More

After a wonderful stay at The House of the Rising Sun earlier in the spring, I knew it would be my first choice of accommodations when work sent me back to NOLA this summer. I had my fingers crossed, hoping Kevin and Wendy and Boudin...More

Kevin, Wendy and Boudin made our first trip to NOLA a most memorable experience. After arriving and getting our luggage in our room, Kevin offered us each a bottle of Abita, his favorite beer. We sat on the patio talking with him and wound down...More

Many thanks for your wonderful review. Glad your first B&B experience was with us and hope to see you again some time soon.

Many thanks for your wonderful review. We look forward to your next visit now that you have found us.
Sitting pretty across the Mississippi River from the rambunctious French Quarter, the Crescent City’s second oldest neighborhood is as historic and as scenic as any – just a lot less showy about it. With its numerous 19th and early 20th century homes and plentiful parks and riverside green space for cycling and walking, subdued and low key Algiers yields the best views of New Orleans and offers a quiet haven
from the hustle and bustle in other parts of town. Most of the area’s activity, for visitors anyway, takes place at Algiers Point where the famous Canal Street / Algiers Ferry has been the main attraction since 1827 and is still giving folks one of the best rides in town at very affordable rates. Restaurants, bars and music venues here all but guarantee the utmost of authentic experiences sans any hype or high prices.
